So technically speaking, this wasn't supposed to be one of the award categories we wrote about to wrap up the 2013-2014 season. But a) we ended up with an odd number of categories and b) multiple members of the panel mentioned the "Super Andre Williams" video at various points on their ballots.
As the Andre Williams for Heisman hype machine cranked up, Grant created this video of Andre Williams as Super Mario:
The video quickly racked up over 100,000 views (it's up over 200,000 now) and got links from Deadspin, NESN and several other sites.
This post pretty much circulated the internet in a way no other BCI post had done to this point, so congratulations, Grant. You still suck, though.
In this category, I have to give a nod to AJ's outstanding football preview posts, which do a great job of introducing us to opponents and learning what to expect in a game. I also quite enjoy New Guy's UMass-trolling posts. Easy clicks. He also gets tons of credit for his in-depth baseball posts. It's not easy to cover a team whose performance is miserable, but he did it with gusto, and even provided some accurate insight and comments along the way.
